Dana Levy, World Order

Israeli artist Dana Levy discusses her 2013 book World Order, which was produced for her 2012 solo show at The Center for Contemporary Arts Tel Aviv in affiliation with Braverman Gallery and Sternthal Books.

In Dana Levy’s creations, memory, identity, and the relationship between man and nature raise questions of the notion of home, belonging, and migration. What is the relationship between the natural and unnatural, and how does cataloging come into play in man’s basic instinct to control the environment and to subdue the wild?

By looking at Levy’s videos, video installations, and photography, the conversation explores a historical as well as a personal context to a contemporary socio-political reality in the Middle East and around the globe. This is the first in a series of conversations at ICI initiated by curator and artist Naomi Lev, focusing on art and artists from Israel.

The original event took place on Thursday, March 14, 2013.
